Marston’s and Oakham Ales are among the UK brewers celebrating wins at the International Brewing and Cider Awards 2015.

Marston’s won the top accolades of Champion Keg Ale for its Revisionist Rye Pale Ale and Champion Non and Low Alcohol Beer for its Manns Brown Ale.

Oakham Ales won the Champion Cask Conditioned Ale with Green Devil IPA.

The ceremony, which took place in London yesterday (29 April), saw trophies awarded to nine beers and one cider, with US brewer Deschutes scoring a ‘hat trick’ with three Championship titles. As well as the presentations to the 10 Championship winners, Bronze, Silver and Gold medals were given to more than 100 brewers and cider makers.

Accolade

Chair of judges Bill Taylor said: “Close to 1,000 beers and ciders were judged at Burton-upon-Trent earlier this year, so to be chosen as one of just 10 Championship winners is a tremendous accolade and the brewers and cider maker who are lifting trophies today should be very proud of their achievement.

“The cider category introduced in 2013 and expanded in 2015, attracted almost double the number of entries this year. The International Cider Awards are firmly established as a credible competition and we look forward to building on them still further for 2017.”

The International Brewing and Cider Awards 2017 will be held in Burton-upon-Trent in February 2017.
